Nothing makes me want to do the cabbage patch more than good food. Although, truth be told, I have my own happy food dance, I think today is a cabbage patch day because it's National Donut Day! You get a donut, you get a donut, everybody gets a donut!!! Ok, you may not get a donut today, but many stores across our great nation are giving out free donuts. In fact, I found out there is a donut eating contest at the Mill Creek Frost Donuts location tonight at 6pm. Alas, I tried to sign up too late, and even sadder I haven't had a donut today. Do cry for me though, I've been to the new Frost location in downtown Everett twice this week (it opened on Tuesday). Nothing is more beautiful than a box of gem-like donuts. I may be exaggerating, but behold...
There are some stars here including the: Blueberry Pancake, Passion Fruit Crueler, Smoky Maple Bacon Bar, Butterfinger Blast, Double Chocolate Sprinkle, Wedding Cake, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, Lemon Old Fashioned, Old Fashioned, and (in the wee corner) Salted Caramel Old Fashioned.
I shared most off them with my coworkers, but the one I wanted to try was the Aztec Chocolate. I'm a sucker for a chocolate/spice combo.
This donut was everything I hoped it would be, but I wanted something a little more strange, and further in the week was able to try the Rootbeer donut.
As I write this I'm noticing a trend in brown, so let me present their macarons. Yes, I tried professionally made macarons for the first time!
I was most excited about the pinkish cookie pictured above, which is a Sriracha Caramel. Sadly, it was similar to my personal experiment of putting sriracha on vanilla bean ice cream, kind of gross. Sriracha tastes so good because it also has garlic, but my palate has not yet evolved to a place where garlic and sweet can play together.
Did I mention they also have cupcakes?
Long story short, Frost Donuts opened a new location in Everett this week; today is National Donut Day; I have not had the pleasure of a donut today. You should go eat a donut (or doughnut) and tell me where you got it, and how ooey-gooey delicious it is.
I'm a not-for-profit worker that loves food, both healthy and indulgent. I've eaten the 12 egg omelette at Beth's Cafe: toast, hash browns, and all. Take that Adam Richman!
